What’s involved ?

Each session lasts about 20 minutes and leaves staff feeling relaxed yet energised.  It is given on a comfortable, portable, specially designed chair and does not require staff to remove any clothes.  As a result it is ideal for people at work.  Workplace Healthcare on-site massage uses more than 100 different stress pressure points on the head, neck and shoulders, arms and back.  It is a wonderfully rejuvenating experience and leaves staff feeling alert, more focused and revitalised.  The effect is immediate and has a direct influence on well-being leading to increased productivity and reduced stress levels.  Call and contact centres can benefit from a ‘roaming’ service, shorter treatments which do not require the operator to leave their workstation.

At product launches, training days and exhibitions – what better way to make your event really special”.
